Giolitti-Cantoni Broth Base

Intended Use

Giolitti-Cantoni Broth Base is used for enriching Staphylococcus aureus from foods during isolation procedures. 

Summary and Explanation

Giolitti and Cantoni1 described a broth medium with added potassium tellurite and a test procedure for enriching small numbers of staphylococci in foods. Mossel et al.2 recommended
Giolitti-Cantoni Broth for detecting Staphylococcus aureus in dried milk and other infant foods where the organism should be absent from 1 g of test material. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and American Public Health Association recommend using Giolitti- Cantoni Broth in a MPN procedure for detecting S. aureus.3,4

Principles of the Procedure

Giolitti-Cantoni Broth Base contains peptone and beef extract as sources of carbon, nitrogen, vitamins and minerals. Yeast extract supplies B-complex vitamins which stimulate bacterial
growth. D-Mannitol is the carbohydrate source. Sodium pyruvate stimulates growth of staphylococci. Lithium chloride inhibits gram-negative bacilli. Added Tellurite Solution 1% supplies
potassium tellurite, which in combination with glycine, inhibits gram-positive bacteria other than staphylococci. Tween™* 80 acts as an emulsifier.
*Tween is a trademark of ICI Americas Inc.

Procedure

For food samples, follow appropriate standard methods for details on sample collection and preparation according to sample type and geographic location.3,4 Consult appropriate references for details on test methods using Giolitti-Cantoni Broth Base.3,4

Expected Results

Read tubes for blackening of the medium (a positive reaction) or no blackening (a negative reaction). If blackening occurs, subculture to Baird-Parker Agar to confirm the isolation of
S. aureus.
